Here at heat, we LOVE pop. You can keep your Kings of Leon and shove your Stone Roses; 'cause heat Radio's all about the non-stop bangers. Think of us as that first fizzy Friday night prosecco...on the radio.

And, now it's easier than ever to tune in thanks to the snazzy player down there ⬇️, we thought we'd give you 7 reasons why you NEED heat Radio in your life. You ready?


You can listen to heat Radio whenever, wherever (to quote Shakira). You can find us on DAB digital radio across the UK, download our app from your phone’s app store or tune in to Freeview channel 716 on your tellybox.

Just ask your Amazon Echo, Google Home and Apple HomePod to 'play Heat Radio'. Simple.

2. Wake up with Emily

This is one of your fab five-a-day with an hourly fix of all things entertainment in The Bagel, a cheeky motivational quote of the day (or Mo Quo, as Emily calls it) and a sounding board for life’s little frustrations in First World Problems.

Oh, and who can forget The Brag Off which sees music and movie stars like Ricky Gervais, P!nk and Ed Sheeran try their best to out-brag Emily?
